Ryan Matthews says he’ll be ready to play against the Broncos

Chargers RB Ryan Matthews has battled injuries his entire career. This season he has been relatively healthy and productive so it is no surprise Chargers fans are concerned about his status for this weekend’s game after leaving Sunday’s game with an injury. Matthews is quelling those concerns.

“My mindset is I’m playing,” Mathews said, via Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego. “We keep fighting. Coach [Mike] McCoy says it all the time. It’s the next man up. We’re all ready.”-ProFootballTalk.com

Getting Matthews back will be big for coach Mike McCoy as the Chargers try to control the clock against the Broncos. The Chargers have a deep backfield but another set of healthy legs, especially legs as talented as Matthews’, will do wonders for their offense.
